Meet the team
The Metronomes community is made up of thousands of people from all over the world. Over 2000 of them live across the North Kensington and surrounding areas. Each summer over 100 steel pan players and supporters join us at our rehearsal space, the pan yard, for the Panorama season. Throughout the year players of the stageside, Metro Academy and adult beginners rehearse the band’s repertoire in the pan yard each week.
Meet the team of volunteers and band members that keep it all running smoothly.
